Eugene's team wins every day of the week, how you other guys managed to be so far behind him I have no idea.
A better pol for me is who then faces Eugene in the grand final. Gets harder but I am thinking Jaybro because he probably has the best balanced attack, clear he focused more than others on this side of things.
What’s wrong with my batting? Apart from Wishart it’s a good batting lineup and quite long.
I think my openers are the best combo both average over 30, I’ve got BT, Raza, Slug, KC and even Friend could bat pretty well. I was watching highlights of a game v South Africa in England where he smashed them all over the park for 70 or 80 odd; looked like a proper batsman.
The biggest issue in my side is the lack of a spearhead seamer from recent times; KC was just as good as any Zimbabwe seamer (apparently) but I doubt many here including me saw him actually bowl.
Apart from Andy & Murray; Eugene’s batting isn’t that special at all
I never said your batting was shit. When I said don't used more on bowling' I was referring to your competitors, it was a compliment.
The batting issue between you and Eugene for me is;
Eugene, in a 4 horse race, managed to get 3/5 best batsmen we have produced in his lineup. I think he one upped everyone with fletch and he benefitted from being early enough to pick flower.
His batters are out most consistent and stable. He has Marillier and Bliggie who can provide the fireworks and he has Vermeuelen who was on his way to being a superstar before the head knock.
He also managed to get ouR best spinner ever, our fastest bowler and some consistent Dibbly dobbers for a well rounded attack by Zim standards.
I can see his batting getting a score of 6/290 there about.
Your batting care has too many inconsistent players. If they all fired they would be extremely hard to stop, but too many of them fire only 1/4 of the time.even Ervine and Taylor are inconsistent by Eugene's standards.
Eugene is also boosted by Flower, he has a massive impact on any team and is a huge pick.
Your team would eventually collapse In wickets.
You have the strongest attack though so if the wicket is bowler friendly you could get some wins.
